Now Exhibiting Real Jobs

, , , | Right | November 2, 2020

I work in a museum and I was specifically hired to work in a special temporary exhibit that sells extra tickets. I have just finished selling tickets to this guest and her children.

Guest: “So, how long is this exhibit going to be here?”

Me: “Honestly, I don’t know. Originally, I was only hired to work for three months because that’s how long the exhibit was supposed to last. But it’s been almost a year now and the exhibit’s still here, and so am I!”

Guest: “Oh, that’s wonderful! And it’s not even a real job!”

Cut to dozens of flashbacks of ten-plus-hour shifts on my feet as I rolled my eyes and she walked away.
